Clubs are the heartbeat of football in this country. That is why The FA Charter Standard club programme, which raises standards and recognises and rewards quality, is so important.
Every player at some stage of their career will play in a grassroots club. We have a shared responsibility to ensure that this experience is a positive one – whether you are six or 60.
The FA Charter Standard Programme provides recognition that clubs are well run and sustainable, with child protection and safety paramount. It also recognises a club’s commitment to coaching, player and coach development, and the raising of standards of behaviour in the game.
Southwell City is a Charter Standard Community Club, comprising boys, girls and adult teams. We currently runs 32 sides from under 7’s to adult age groups, catering for all abilities.
The Club has a comprehensive development plan and safeguarding children policy and procedures along with an equality policy, photographic policy and codes of conduct for players, coaches and officials and also for parents and carers. These documents are all available for download from the resources section of the website and we encourage you to make yourself aware of these policies.
Child Welfare Officer
The Club Welfare Officer is Richard Miller. He is available to discuss any Child Protection concerns or circumstances or events you consider to be poor practice. We as a club have a duty of care to place the welfare of children before anything else, to make sure players are safe at all times and to help make football an enjoyable, safe and fulfilling activity for every child. If you need to contact the CWO, details can be found on the Managers and Officials page.
The club currently play in a variety of leagues and levels enabling “football for all” as part of the Clubs mission statement.
